Welcome to Auchterellon Under 5’s

Auchterellon Under 5’s was opened on 19th September 1981. We have been providing play and learning facilities for children in the Ellon area ever since.


We are a registered charity and although we receive funding from the local authority and parents, this does not cover all of the costs incurred in running the group. As a result, fundraising is a major part of the committee’s role and we need the help and support of parents to ensure our fundraising efforts are successful.

The group is managed by a committee which all parents/carers are welcome to join.

We work to the National Care Standards which were created to help make sure children get the right quality of care. The Care Inspectorate is the independent scrutiny and improvement body for care and children’s services. They regulate and inspect our care service and make sure that people receive the highest quality of care and that their rights are promoted and protected. You can find our latest care inspection report on our website under the “information” menu at the top.
